News & Events

Photography Group

Members who like taking photos are welcome to come along and share their work on the month’s theme or any other work. Meetings are relaxed and friendly and there is always something to be learnt from the way other people use their cameras.

June’s meeting on Thursday 21st begins at 7.30pm in No. 8 as usual but then Geoff will give everyone a task to go into the street and shoot. Set your cameras to JPEG so we can easily review our efforts back at No. 8 later.
(If it is raining please bring prints as usual, on the topic of Street Life & Scenes.

July’s meeting on Thursday 19th will be based at Number 8 as usual on the theme of “Creatures” - wildlife, pets, farm.

Sketchbook Group

Members who enjoy sketching are welcome to join our Sketchbook meetings. These are informal and friendly gatherings where we share recent work and chat about all things art over a drink or two. We usually meet in the convivial surrounds of The Star, Bridge Street at 7.30pm – for dates, see the Calendar.

On Wednesday 25th July we will have a special meeting at the home of Jenny Devos. We will gather at 7.30pm to watch a 60 minute film on JMW Turner followed by discussion. We will send details out to members by email.

April’s sketchbook outing was a visit to Slimbridge Wetland Centre. Members met there at 10am and explored the bird habitats with cameras initially, before settling down to some sketching. The visit was well-timed for chicks, cygnets and goslings, but the glamorous flamingos grabbed the spotlight!

We try to organise regular exhibitions at a variety of venues throughout the year. Our next exhibiting opportunity is at Pershore Abbey on Bank Holiday Monday 27th August from 10am - 4pm. Setting up takes place from 4.45pm to 6pm on Sunday 26th. If you are interested in taking part, please contact Frans or another member of the committee.

An Evening with Pershore Arts

An exciting opportunity to spread the word about Pershore Arts has been offered by Number 8 Community Arts Centre. We have been invited to present an evening of art discussion at Number 8 in September. Four of our members are lined up to give short illustrated talks about their work and media of choice. If you would also like to be a speaker at this event, please contact Frans or another member of the committee.
